The Confederate Form of


Almighty God, the sovereign disposer of events, it hath pleased Thee to protect and defend the Confederate States hitherto, in their conflict with their enemies and to be unto them a shield.

With grateful thanks we recognise Thy hand, and acknowledge that not unto us but unto Thee belongeth the victory; and in humble dependence upon Thy Almighty strength, and trusting in the justness of our cause, we appeal to Thee that it may please Thee to set at naught the efforts of all our enemies, and put them to confusion and shame.

O Almighty God, we pray Thee that it may please Thee to grant us Thy blessing upon our arms, and give us victory over all ourenemies, wherever they may be.

Preserve our homes and altars from pollution, and secure to us the restoration of peace and prosperity; all of which we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our blessed Lord and Saviour, to whom, with Three, the Father and the Holy Spirit, we will give all the praise and glory in time and through all eternity.

Amen and Amen
